Weed control in wheel tracks
Published: 4 Aug 2014
Improving weed control in wheel tracks during summer fallow spraying
Poor weed control in the wheel tracks of the sprayer can result from a number of factors.
- Poor control of weeds in the sprayer’s wheel tracks and the adjacent areas during summer fallow applications can be the result of poor spray deposition, excessive dust or a combination of the two.
- Using additional wheel track nozzles for knock down herbicides (non-residual) can improve deposition and the level of
control in the wheel tracks and adjacent areas
- Generally, dust is only reduced when soil moisture is present, speed is reduced or more permanent wheel tracks are used.
